Children and Books

Together with Skansen, the Education Administration of Stockholm and the city library, the Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award organizes the competition Children and Books. This year’s theme was City versus Country. Schools in the whole Stockholm region read books connected to this theme and created their own interpretation of what they read. The winners were awarded at a ceremony at Skansen and the prizes – books, of course! – were presented by Shaun Tan and the vice Mayor of Stockholm Lotta Edholm. The ceremony was also the starting point of three days of readings and work shops for children at Skansen.
